Causes for really high RBC counts could be:
• Living at high altitute
• Chronic carbon monoxide exposure
• Sleep apnea
• Heart problems
• Kidney disease
• Lung disease
• Inherited bone marrow disorders, such as polycythemia vera
• Some types of cancer
• Anabolic steroids
• External erythropoietin use
Also in my case WBC count declined from 18 down to 10 in average, during the 10 years consuming high dose vitamin C. I would, however, never use chewables, tablets or capsules - but only pure ascorbic acid powder - for avoiding all the additives, binder and fillers, which in such amounts for sure could cause problems.
My weight has been constant at about 62 kg on a high fat/low carb diet. If you have other lab results, please do share. Much can be learned from.
I have some tests here. One was from like a month ago or more, and the other one was from today (some more info hasnt been sent to me yet). I guess it came down a bit, but a few weeks ago it was 5.7 maybe it can have a difference of 0.2 or 0.3 for me it can vary(thats what doc told me)? If you notice anything else let me know. thanks for your thoughts, thats good that your wbc came down, I think for this one my MCV was on the low side or the normal range or it just fell out of range but I got an alert on my test it was 1 point out of range(low).. not sure what the range is. Thanks again.
The alerts will be noted with an A under it, also I think some of them are sitting right on the low end or high end of the normal range. Thanks.
and this is a test from a month or two ago.
